    New dashboard looks sweet [​IMG]

    Wow the 360 is getting like 6 rpg's.
    No longer can people say the 360 lacks rpg's.

    Weird that they didn't mention anything about the new halo.

    I'm happy with the conference for the most part. The avatars have me kind of interested. I'd like to find out more about the dashboard and I'm speechless about FFXIII, didn't see that coming. Liking my 360 purchase more every day!

    Edit: Woah, play from hard drive?!? I haven't seen that anywhere else, I'd love some clarification on that.

    Yeah, I was just thinkin that it couldn't possibly be as simple as it sounds but I guess it is. 20 gb is gonna fill up might fast though. Can't wait to see it in motion.

    FFXIII did it for me. Now what to decide what my Gamer Tag should be whenever I get a 360.

    You would have to import it though, there isn't currently a X360 version coming out in Japan.

    Sony has no reason to continue in the console market.
